The desire for my own boat started in Bremerton in 2012, at the Ranger Tugs Rendezvous. Since then, I have been working diligently on all the details. And as we got closer and closer, the excitement rose, but it never really sunk in that we were going to have a boat until today.
Andrew called a few days ago with the news that Hull #2724 was out of the mold and I should make arrangements to swing by the factory in Kent and see “Current Obsession” take shape. I arrived and after a short lunch with Andrew, Jeff and Ivan we went onto the production floor, and there she was… in 3 pieces…The hull, the insert and the cabin, each being worked on by many competent boat builders. I got to see many of the details we spent all winter finalizing for my special version of the Ranger Tug R-27.
below you will find a small montage of pictures showing the progress.
